Annoying Magnifier glass feature -- turn off and disable

Hi all
I pressed something by accident on the mouse -- now I've got this really annoying large square box with magnified text inside it instead of a regular mouse cursor

How do I switch this off and also PERMANENTLY disable this really ANNOYING feature.

I've no idea what I pressed when moving the mouse but it really is irritating.

cheers
